Vintage Sewing Chest


I am so excited, I can not even wait till this actually arrives to share it with all of you. Look at this amazing sewing chest I just bought from Lisa at Pink Paint and Roses. Oh my, I am so in-love. I have been wanting a sewing basket. My cigar box is to small, but this is even better. I love how it folds up flat for storage and then opens up, even with it's own little table top you can pull out. Plus is is pink. I drag my sewing all around my house. This will be prefect for that. Thank you Lisa (if you have not seen her charming blog, go check it out !!! ) I will treasure this and thank you ladies for letting me share. Ohh if I can only wait for it to come now !!!!!

I have one of these that I want to sell. Mine is older I think. Can you tell me what you paid for it?

This is an amazing find! I have been sewing for about 30 years, and I would love this too!


That is gorgeous! I've never seen anything like that before.


Clarice, I just saw a 1940's one of these at a tag sale yesterday--lucky you! Enjoy it:-)


WOW!!! That sewing chest is the greatest! I bet it will inspire you to sew, sew, sew!


You Lucky GAL!!!!!!!!
I have never seen one of them before, WOW! No need to hide away the ugly craft supply box when company comes, That is beautiful.


Welcome back, Clarice!! Your vintage sewing chest is absolutely charming, and the color is perfect!! Have fun setting all the supplies up inside it!



That's a very special sewing chest. I'd never seen one like it before today, and here it turns out you and Dawn at 4:53 am both have one! When she saw yours she posted pictures of hers for everyone to see too. They are both really pretty.

It's absolutely, 100% perfect! Doing a happy dance for you --- and happy sewing!



That is so adorable! I've never seen anything like it. What a great purchase :)


It's the first time I see something like this. Interesting, different...very nice!


Oh my! It's so adorable. I can understand your eagerness to use it. I love it :)

you scored ok???? you really scored!!! I love this so much....I'll have to come and visit that place looks so good...your blog is so rich thanks for sharing all the wealth...Jennifer



What a wonderful unique piece. I absolutely love it!
Clarice, I'm guessing and am probably wrong, but I believe the piece is forty's.

My friend Julie has pieces with the same sticker type decals, and they are all from that period.
Actually who cares! It's a darn great find and will fit perfect in your beautiful home.

I do hope that you love it!
Just to quickly answer your Mom's question...

Mom, I don't think it's handmade. The paint is too perfect. There are no manufacturers marks on it either. If it is handmade they did a beautiful job, lots of detail.
By the way, you have a lovely daughter. Clarice is a wonderful woman and that is a nice reflection of you. Thank you for sharing her with the rest of us.

Oh Wow! I'm coveting like crazy here! I'd love one.


Cute, cute, cute! If only I did more sewing then I could justify something like that. :)

Hu! I've never seen anything like that before, had you?

How big is it?

What a fun find! Congratulations.


I was wondering if someone made it. I've never seen anything like it either. It is a fun piece. Love, Mom

This is truly a unique piece!! How fun!


This is just amazing I've never seen one like it before.


I have never seen on quite like it before.
That is so nice that you are so excited about it.
Don't you love Lisa's blog and shop?
She is the nicest!!!


First of all it's very beautiful painted pink with those little flowers, and how convenient it will be! Love the little table top feature. My grandmother had one very similar that she had made at Home Bureau.
